Will it survive this year? Or will it tumble down in ashes as so many before it have? It's time for the 2022 Burning Goat Festive Kit!

Burning Goat, you say?

That's right. In the Swedish city of Gävle there rises, every December, a Christmas straw goat. Not just any Christmas straw goat, but a goat of enormous proportions! This goat looms about 13 meters tall (that's 42 feet if you prefer imperial) as it watches over the Castle Square in central Gävle. But the goat is in constant peril as it has, since its inception in 1966, been burned down by arsonists more times than not. And yes, this is despite the fact that it is highly illegal to burn down the goat. Every year millions wait in anticipation to see if the goat will survive until the holiday season!

What's in the kit?

The kit consists of 12 x 20g mini skeins that tell the story of your very own Christmas straw goat. As before, you can choose for yourself if your Goat survives, is destroyed, or if you like mysteries you can leave it up to us! Only by opening your kit will you know for sure what fate awaits your Goat.

Each skein will be packaged in an individual, numbered bag for that fun, advent calendar experience. Each kit will also contain a few extra surprise goodies to keep up the holiday spirit! 

We are offering the kit on 2 bases this year: Merino Twist (100% Superwash Merino) and Socktastic (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon). The kit will NOT be identical to the 2021 kit.
